The Wairoa Township River Walkway winds along the banks of the river from the historic lighthouse in the CBD, finishing at the famous lookout point on Pilot's Hill. In the few years since the walkway was started, it has become a mainstay in the recreational activities of both residents and visitors alike. On any day of the week, people can be seen enjoying the path, whether it be taking a leisurely stroll, running or cycling with the family.
The walkway is nearing completion, with only the finishing touches such as rest areas and historic plaques needed to draw the project to a close.
There are a number of sites along the walkway which have some historical significance. If you sponsor 35 metres, or more, of walkway, you will be able to choose a site from the Historical Plaques pamphlet, available from the Information Centre. A plaque acknowledging your donation and an explanation of the historical significance of the site will be erected at the appropriate place on the Walkway.
All contributions will be acknowledged by the issue of a Share Certificate and the donor's name written in a Book of Contributors which will be kept at the Information Centre.
The Wairoa community will be able to watch the walkway contributions grow in "The Wairoa Star".
